Excerpt: I've had this phone for over three years and have to say that it was pretty high maintenance. It no longer lets me turn it on or off, so it's off the the recycling bin as not even Virgin will give me a credit on it for my next purchase. Bluetooth never worked. After about 18 months of ownership I had to break into it as the internal memory got loaded with a file that kept the phone from receiving text messages. It was a nightmare!
Pros: Visually nice, Compact, Nice material
Cons: Problem with file filling memory, Battery cover was useless, Screen was hard to see in the sun, Accessing the internet was to slow to bother, Very poor battery life
Excerpt: I've had this phone nearly 2 years now. Rooted and used 2.3 Starship Triumph (excellent build--very stable) for over a year. Just flashed ICS rom this weekend and love it. Phone is a little slower, but overall, everything functions except for the video camera and HDMI port. Battery life is so so, but build quality feels very good for a prepaid. Would highly recommend this phone as a budget ICS root project!
Summary: I am loving this phone! The size is great and it's the best phone on the $25 a month virgin mobile plan. It has great picture quality, nice sound, and long battery life. Of course it has small glitches like slowing up or freezing from time to time, but in my experience, every phone seems to have that same issue. Otherwise, I am very happy with this purchase and I would definitely recommend!
Summary: Needed a new phone and thought this would be a great buy... Turned out I was wrong the phone turned out to not be so great. things i disliked was the fact it felt real cheap and for a phone that was 169$ at the time I bought it was not worth it. Screen would flicker and the battery sucks and when i have to charge my phone in the middle of the day is not good. if it can't make it through a whole day then it not worth my money.
Summary: Bought to replace identical 18 month old phone that drowned. Phone arrived in a timely manner and was as advertised. Phone not the latest technology but works just fine for me as phone, camera, several apps, and internet connection. Phone now stays in zip-lock snack bag most of the time. If necessary would buy another. Battery life is fine for me unless taking a lot of flash pics.
Excerpt: I have this phone for almost 14 months. I say is really good for my first android phone. The first 4 months, I had no problems with it. Until it started loosing memory, lagging, and many more problems. So I decide to root it and install the 2.3 rom. I fix many issues but cause and HDMI so it won't work. 6 Months Later I installed 2.2 Sharp Rom and I will say that this is a completely recommended rom for any Motorola triumph user.
Great upgrade from LG Optimus V. bigger screen, better camera(s), speakers
8 February 2013
Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted an upgrade from the LG Optimus V without losing my $25/month plan. The features of this phone that I like are: front facing camera, better rear camera (5.0 mp plus flash), larger screen (4.1 inch), longer battery life, stronger speakers. I bought the phone used, and the previous owner took excellent care of it. At the time, the going rate on eBay for this phone (used) was between $70 and $90 with shipping depending on the condition.
Great deal, buy the phone and the Virgin Mobile grandfather plan!
28 January 2013
Summary: Great phone. Bought it on eBay and also purchased the Virgin Mobile grandfather plan here on eBay too. Save a lot of money by purchasing the Virgin Mobile grandfather plan along with this phone since only select phones work with the plan and this one is one of the select ones. Great phone, I did have a few issues at first with the service but Virgin Mobile fixed them.
Excerpt: My last phone was a Motorola Droid so I thought Triumph would be similar, wrong. The hardware may be OK but the software integration on Triumph sucks. #1 complaint is Bluetooth won't stay connected so the thing is useless for driving hands free. VM customer service has been totally unresponsive on this problem Second the android keyboard is poorly configured. It uses your contacts list for a dictionary.
Pros: nice screen, acceptable speed
Cons: Bluetooth is useless for driving, software configuration is full of dumb mistakes
Summary: I love this phone! I switched over to the Triumph from a BlackBerry Curve and I love it. It did take a while to adjust to the touch screen, but the interface is very user friendly and easy to navigate. The screen resolution is great and the customization options for this phone are endless. I love the fact that I feel I've got a high-end phone on a pre-paid carrier.
